    E4300?

    I've been away for a while, and whilst speccing (again) a low-end C2D system, I noticed this chip, which seems to be at the same price as a 6300 used to be. What is it? Is it a typo?

    Nope, they are another core 2 duo chip known as "allendale". The E4300 has a 9x multiplier, compared to the E6300 which has a 7x. Thus, it is easier to theoritically overclock higher than the E6300. Technically speaking, whilst the E6300 hass 4MB of cache on the chip itself only 2MB is enabled. The E4300 has all of it's 2MB cache enabled, so they have the same cache size enabled.

    The only drawback is that E4300's don't support virtualisation technology, which not everyone needs.

    So, if you plan on overclocking and want a cheap chip thats cheap as chips, the 4300 is a good bargain as you can get away with some pc2-6400 ram for decent overclockage.

    you can also have a 1:1 400 FSB and dont need more expensive RAM if you want to overclock higher...
